“Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby!”
The stone was artificially created by the Japanese supercomputer programmer Yukihwhichiro Matsumoto, who thought it might be funny to build a stone out of abstract materials such as integers, Turing machine tape, and atoms.
Ruby is said to follow the principle of least surprise, meaning that the stone behaves intuitively. For example, if you drop it off a tall building, it will begin swearing and cursing, just as you would expect.
However, the most intuitive stone can behave strangely. Ruby is no exception. For example, for some reason it frequently believes it is, in fact, a pearl. Other possible surprises include the following:
- The stone may surprise you by choosing not to surprise you. If this happens, consider seeing a psychiatrist.
- The stone will seek to attach itself to the nearest computer by quantum-entangling it with powerful laser beams.
- The stone may do something completely useless and have infinite ways of doing something compeletely useless.
- Will add a fiery quality to any object you socket it into
